Tukau te wairua kia rere - Let your Spirit Fly
Celebrate with the Opus Orchestra!
Opus orchestra is pleased to present a special program with an Easter Theme.
Musical masterpieces that explore the sorrow, hope and exultation of the Easter story to audiences in Hamilton, Tauranga, and Rotorua.
In each city, Opus Orchestra will collaborate with the local Civic Choir for the Vaughan William’s deeply moving Mystical Songs. The programme includes the premiere of Waikato composer David Griffith’s Parable of the Vineyard.
In this, and in the Vaughan Williams, our soloist is Tauranga-based baritone, Chalium Poppy.
Our concert opens with Haydn’s reflection on Christ’s final words from the cross and his dramatic evocation of the earthquake that followed his death. We end with Mozart’s “Prague” Symphony written at the same time as Don Giovanni and sharing its strongly dramatic character.
Join us to explore a profound exploration of human suffering, of hope, of joy and exultation. As the final Mystical Song has it “let all the world in every corner sing”.
